Nicole Kidman Would Give Up Acting 'No Question' if Keith Urban Asked Her To

Nicole KidmanNo doubt Nicole Kidman is majorly family-oriented. Especially after her comment at the Cannes Film Festival that she would give up acting and her entire film career if her husband Keith Urban asked her to.

The 46-year-old Oscar-winner is in France promoting her latest film Grace of Monaco but told the Daily Mail that she wouldn't mind leaving Hollywood behind for the sake of her family.


Kidman has been married to the country superstar since 2006, and they have two daughters together, Sunday Rose Kidman Urban, 5, and Faith Margaret Kidman Urban, 3. She also has two from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise -- Isabella, 21, and Connor, 19.

When asked if she would've taken on the iconic role of Grace Kelly had Urban not been supportive, she said, "If he said no, I wouldn't have done it ... that's how we are ... I know this sounds old-fashioned, but I do put it on the table." She continued, "Because if it won't work for us, then I'm not doing it."

Kidman has famously said that her 2003 Oscar win for The Hours in the wake of her divorce from Tom meant nothing without love. She said awards "can show you the emptiness of your own life, which is kind of what it showed me ... I was having professional success and my personal life was struggling."

Now her personal life seems peachy, and she refers to her insanely hot musician hubby as "a prince." When the Daily Mail asked her if Urban would ever demand she choose between her career and her family, she would choose her family. "Yeah, if he asked me," she said. "No question."

That's not exactly a very progressive thing to say, but I bet the reason she can say that is because she's in a happy and healthy relationship with a man who values her for who she is and wouldn't just ask her to give up a huge part of her life without having an insanely good reason for doing so.

Let's hope that that is never put to the test -- not because it has anything to do with their marriage or family life, but just because Nicole Kidman is an amazingly talented actress and it would be a shame to not see her in any more roles.

Would you give up your career for your husband?
